Right isosceles triangle

Right isosceles triangle has an altitude x drawn from the right angle to the hypotenuse dividing it into 2 equal segments. The length of one segment is 5 cm. What is the area of the triangle?

Correct answer:

S =  25 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

c1=5 cm c2=c1=5 cm c=c1+c2=5+5=10 cm  h=c1 c2=5 5=5 cm  S=c h2=10 52=25 cm2
